Would recommend this to anyone visiting Huatulco. Took bug repellent after reading other reviews but didn't come across any. Must depend on the time of year. Beautiful view from the top of the trail, definitely take a camera. No problem in flip-flops. Maybe difficult to get up to the top unless you are in good shape. Not a dirt path - all flat rock and cement trail. Museum very interesting. Signs in museum are all in Spanish - to keep the tour guides working I think. All signs along the trails and archeological sites are English and Spanish. Ran into a couple that had an app on the cellphone that translated the Spanish into English when you pointed cellphone at the Spanish signs! Also we took a cab there and when visit was over the front desk will call you a cab.

It's a small site only 3 temples and one was closed at the beginning is a new museum some interesting artefacts but only written in Spanish. But along the trail is translated in English for some back ground on this old site. Then the view at the top is a treat where the river meets the ocean with lots of birds. There's also a wetland area again with birds. The path is easy to get around a small hike to the top and is all in overgrown old trees. Takes 1-2 hours for the whole site. I took a collectivo from la Cruzcieta with the sign Copolita and again from the road the collectivo back 15 pesos each way and 80 pesos to get in so not an expensive half day trip.

We visited the site in late September 2016 and for a site that is still work in progress, I thought it was very interesting. It was still in the morning that we visited and the temperature and humidity were comfortable. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, but his English left a little to be desired. I helped interpret what he was saying to two German couples. I'm glad I was good with German. The icing on the cake was to climb up to the top at the cliffs and look out at the ocean. Beautiful and peaceful area.

We came here March 2016. Great way to spend a morning! As usual for Huatulco, very, very hot and unforgiving sun, so I would suggest an earlier visit rather than mid day.
Super cheap to get in, handed a map and sent off on our own to explore. The paths were beautiful, the one spot to get up to the end over looking the ocean is quite a few stairs. Worth the hike if you're able to make it though. Can see from one of the beach down to La Bocana(where we stopped for some much needed beers on the way back to Secrets!)
They were still working on some of the other sites that are yet to be opened. Looking forward to returning in the future!

The paths provide a nice walk with some pretty plants. On the archaeological side, I was disappointed. There are only a couple of stacked stone structures and workers were creating other stacked stone areas while we were there. It all seemed staged.
